Online business is just like blogging.You inform everyone that you have a range of products to offer to prospective clients, how much is it, what sizes are available if it is a shoe or apparel business, and how can they place their order or reach you.
Know your clients - their wants and lifestyle. Sometimes, the reason why a business venture fails is because the products offered are irrelevant to the customer's lifestyle. From there, you can gain an insight on what kind of product to sell. Do they love athletic shoes? Are my clients into clothes and accessories? What kind of clothes do they want? Why not have an online poll so you would know their preferences.  

Consider the prices of your items in conjunction with your target market.Could they afford it? Is the price worth the quality of the product?
Inform them of how the customers could receive their purchases. Is it by cash on delivery (COD) or by courier? Is there an additional charge for the courier?
Have some giveaways for your potential clients. Giveaways may be in a form of samples, tips, free downloadable music, software, or movies. This would keep your prospective buyers in book marking and visiting your web site often.

Email newsletters and other product offers. Even if your target clients do not visit your web site often, they would be updated of your new stocks and bargains.
Promote your web site by using search engine optimization. Utilizing search engine optimization would allow your site to be viewed by other people who are not in your links. This creates a particular interested group that would eventually make your site the word of the mouth.These are only some tips that could be helpful for entrepreneurs who would like to join the bandwagon of online business.
